About

I'm originally from Tokyo. 20 years in Australia, married to an artist, have 2 kids. I backpacked around the world for 3 yrs, did henna tattoo on the street, did fashion design, had an online Scandinavian homeware shop. I studied interpreting/translation in a Uni here and became NAATI qualified, became a medical interpreter. During my mat leave in 2011, I became a celebrant. Been doing this for a decade and loving it. Instead of travelling around, I now join my couples wedding journeys!

FAQ

It depends on the style of your ceremony.

If you would like to have a bespoke ceremony with personal story and vows, rituals, reading etc, it can take up to 30mins.
Simple elopement style ceremony can take 15mins or so.

Bilingual ceremony will obviously take longer but even if you want a bespoke bilingual ceremony I will try to keep it under 30mins as if it's any longer than that your guest would start yawning... :)

Yes! 

I love travelling to different locations for weddings.

There will be a travel charge to cover my time, petrol and toll for NSW.

Interstate travel charge is usually return flight + local transport + interstate travel surcharge

I have traveled to Japan and Spain for weddings too!

As long as the border is open, I usually travel to Japan once a year around May and if you happen to be getting married when I am in Japan, you just pay for my domestic transport. 

Please ask about details.

We were so excited when we came across Megumi during our search for a celebrant. She is not only highly experienced and professional, but has an incredible sense of warmth and friendliness that made her feel as though she was almost part of the family. Not to mention she has a kick-ass sense of style! From the very beginning to end, Megumi was responsive and helpful. From her ongoing communication, resources she provided, general tips and advice related to the overall running of the ceremony and assistance with submitting the documentation for the marriage certificate- Megumi had it all covered. She even came to the rescue with a wet wipe when my dress was slightly splattered with mud right before the ceremony started! Megumi is definitely a one-of-a-kind celebrant and we are so blessed that she was able to officiate our ceremony. Thanks so much, Megumi.

Megumi was our celebrant and we knew from our first meeting she was perfect for us! Her unique bubbly style was what we loved at first but getting to know Megumi we learnt that she made us both feel soo comfortable and excited! She made our ceremony feel soo special, intimate and loving and we loved the energy she bought out of us. She kept us calm and happy the whole time. We absolutely adored Megumi!

It was such a wonderful blessing to have Megumi officiate our simple and intimate ROM ceremony in North Sydney. She has such an amazing personality and her service is impeccable, we couldn’t have picked a better celebrant! She is very friendly, helpful, kind, genuine and professional from the start. It was a great pleasure getting to know her over coffee before the ceremony, she has been very informative about the whole process and given us lots of ideas and suggestions for our ceremony. On the day of the ROM, hubby and I were so so so nervous but Megumi delivered the ceremony so eloquently and elegantly, it was just so beautiful and perfect just the way we wanted it. Our friends and family who had joined us virtually from around the world really enjoyed the whole ceremony. Thank you so much, Megumi for making our day so special!

We took on the Bespoke package with Megumi. She was willing to help us with any questions we had about the process of a civil wedding. She has such a fun vibe and that fit into our day so well.

Should we have signs at our ceremony to leave the front row vacant for immediate family?

I was thinking maybe this is tacky, but then maybe it's necessary. (Or am I really just overthinking it?) Someone suggested that this is the role of the celebrant - to ensure that it's family in the first row. Is that generally true?

Megumi Carver Japanese Celebrant

Not necessary! 
One less thing to worry for you.

Tell your celebrant roughly how many seats you would like for the immidiate family in the front rows and the celebrant would make sure that happens.
It doesn't matter if you need more or less on the day. Other guests would be happy to move seats.
